  • Why not Email? https://www.wycombewanderers.co.uk/club/club-contacts/
  • According to the 3CR commentary, the ref had a good game but listening to it the players didn't make it easy for him. Stats show 15 fouls for the Wanderers and 12 for Oxford.
  • In the 1950s the Rugby club morphed from The Old Wycombiensians (RGS Old Boys). So when it charged to be an open club with a name change new colours were chosen, not at all like the school colours. Why green. black and white? Probably someone can ex…
  • Wycombe Hockey Club also plays in Dark and Light Blue. Its' good of the Wanderers to recognise the cricket club's achievement but the BFP will have to use the word "cricket" if there is a report on it which will be very hard for them.
  • Ban the drum and offer the drummer a free seat with some hospitality thrown in. The increased number of spectators will more than pay for it.
  • This week they have three whole pages with nine articles devoted to the Wanderers. That seems a generous amount of space for one football club by any standards and it has been like that for many months. The content may have come from the club but …
  • As The Bucks Free Press writes absolutely nothing about sport other than The Wanderers it is small wonder that a match like this gets ignored. I wouldn't know if it was covered by Thame's local paper but the complete lack of interest in cricket this…
  • Thanks. I did find it after I wrote my first post. I was still at school and I remember there was a big following from Crook. A lot of them looked quite ferocious to me at least but there was no bother. That was the year we ended up at Brentford to …
  • I have looked at Crooks history and found the match this is what they say about it:- 2 victory by the end of the game. "On 28th January 1950 Crook took 1,000 fans to an away Amateur Cup tie at Wycombe Wanderers. Crook lost the game 1-0 but an inju…
  • I am sure I remember a home cup tie against Crook Town and spent some time looking at the records to find it without success. If anyone can say when it was that would be interesting. I particularly remember it because of their tough-looking supporte…
  • The best crisps available locally are Fiddlers Lancashire crisps which are sold by the Fruit Shop at Booker. There are a variety of flavours including Black Pudding. Read this:- https://www.fiddlerslancashirecrisps.co.uk/

  • I don't think that clubs actually call themselves Latics but is used about them mainly by journalists who like to appear with it.
  • I was talking about the Friday paper which will be full of reports and chat. Online I don't know as I haven't looked.
  • I think that the number of people, particularly youngsters, involved in other sports is not realised by many who follow football. Hockey and Rugby clubs locally have many teams playing regularly on Saturdays, and that involves whole families as I kn…
  • Morecambe is shown as having a population of 33,848 in 2019.Wycombe's population is shown as about 160,000. Some village
  • I remember leaving work and seeing the end of the match In which Bucks beat Somerset at Wycombe in June 1987. It had been a close match and as a long-standing Somerset supporter, I had mixed feelings. The competition was something the minor counties…
  • Excellent comments. Why not print it off and post it to the club, or perhaps they do read this after all as some seem to doubt.
  • There seem to be even more opinions on the merits of beers than about the merits of the footballers. I bet there is more actual experience behind evaluating the beer than the players.
  • Bedford School has always been a top place for cricket, Former pupils include Alistair Cook, other current county players and many more. https://www.bedfordschool.org.uk/upper-school/sport/cricket/ Clubs are now filling the gap in helping to devel…
  • Whatever happens I hope this will not be repeated:-https://www.theguardian.com/football/2021/jul/10/he-is-nine-years-old-more-danes-tell-of-being-abused-by-england-fans
  • I am glad some people share my view on this. The Italian anthem is very long as I remember from Olympic events. I hope those who revel in it will be drowned out. It is taken seriously by most countries but I was present long ago at Twickenham when …
  • For those who were there was the laser pointed at the goalkeeper obvious? It was sad to see their National Anthem booed and booing when they were passing it around. I know that happens a lot but it is distasteful whoever does it.
  • An uncle of mine used to run a " flapper track" at Hazlemere on a field at the top of what is now Inkerman Drive. That was a; long time ago and it is all built up now. A character I used to play cricket against always wanted his team to bat second …
  • I remember how so-called "club cricketers" very much looked down on the local league, which, at that time, was the biggest in the South of England. They would rather play in their own bubble of what were regarded as leading clubs in the area.. The…
  • It's funny how sledging has come to be accepted as normal. In many years playing cricket, it happened very rarely in my experience and yet it was very competitive. I was surprised that the average age of those playing in that match seemed higher th…
  • That was very interesting. Thanks for mentioning it. Good spin bowling with batsmen all at sea. Evidence of much practice at high fiving and post wicket celebrations. When I played village cricket it seemed that every time the ball hit the batsman's…
  • It's good to get some news of local cricket. Even though it is the close season the BFP only writes about the Wanderers.
  • They might even be all made in the same factory as with some own-brand groceries
  • I was looking at the list of players released just by Championship clubs and there are dozens. plus I feel sure, by as many released from the other leagues. Getting to know all about them seems to be what is needed and I am sure the management team …
  • There is a large field next to the running track used by The Phoenix Harriers. It is clearly large enough for a training ground and not near any houses. Look it up on Google map. It would seem to be an ideal place depending on who actually owns the…
